BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 23rd September 2016
Fela Kuti created a unique sound, Afrobeat, but he was far more than a music star. In Nigeria he spoke out for the oppressed on all social issues. He was a cultural revolutionary, and paid the ultimate price. Neneh Cherry conlcudes his story and highlights the relevance of his influence on the music scene of Nigeria and across the world.
